Windows 7: Random BSoD every time I fix something.

Random BSoD every time I fix something.

I have scoured the internet and forums for days trying to find solutions to my issues. I am trying to figure out what I am doing wrong. I Find BSoDs popping up randomly, while playing WoW or just browsing the internet looking for solutions for BSoDs.

I Find the solution to one BSoD, then I get a completely new BSoD and I am just curious if there is some sort of hardware issue that i need to get replaced via RMA or if it is some software issues. I have updated every single driver from the manufacturers website, ran harddrive verifications, harddrive sector checks, EVERYTHING i can think of or find on the internet and i am completely out of ideas.

I have attached the DMP files and such to the post, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Have you run Memtest86+ to see if the RAM is healthy?

I tried uninstalling the video drivers and then nothing on my computer would work, i mean it wouldnt even let me log in. So I think it may have actually been a corruption in the install / updates of windows. I have done a fresh factory format / install of windows and hopefully that will help this solve my issue.

So frustrating. But if I do come into an error again, i will run every test i can.

Sometimes when invoking a solution for problem X, one picks both ends of the stick, meaning now, a problem Y needs a solution. Both ends = solution on one end, unintended consequences on the other.

Hello Shaolang,

Several BSOD's are pointing to your Video driver. Lets update that

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for atikmdag.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for atikmdag.sys
As well as your Realtek Ethernet Driver
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for Rt64win7.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for Rt64win7.sys
Remove your old video driver and update download the latest updated driver:

Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

Download the latest video drivers:

Also update Realtek Drivers

After you download the latest drivers, test your graphics card
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

I see some references to NTFS so as well as the above, perform a Hard Drive test to make sure your hard drive is good

To be safe, also test your Memory. Run at least 8 passes or when you get any errors (even just 1) Upon receiving an error, stop testing. Your memory or memory controller is bad

I thank you for all the assistance. All the tests came back Top notch.

What I ended up having to do was, reset my Harddrive(s) to factory and start from scratch (partitioning, reinstalling windows, etc.). After I did all that. I installed all the updated drivers I downloaded previously during my plague of BSoDs and skipping the dvd's that came with them. Ran the tests WHILE doing other graphic / memory intensive activities and still nothing happened.

I think what ended up happening originally was a corrupted install of windows updates or another program / driver along the way that just snowballed the others.

I really appreciate all the assistance everyone provided. I think I can mark this as resolved (for now at least)
Thanks again,
